Ladies are you Celebrating or Self Medicating?
To Drink or Not to Drink? That is the REAL Question!
This issue has run through my mind several times while flipping through TV channels.
Have you noticed that in so many TV shows, someone always has a drink in their hand.
Drinking usually starts as a group activity, innocently in the bar after work or with friends, hanging out having the best time of your life!
It can easily turn into a serious problem that needs to be discussed!
- Alcoholism can lead to addiction
- Leaving people vulnerable to DUI
- At the mercy of others, often becoming a victim of crime and rape
- Not to mention loss of productivity on the job
- Medical problems such as premature aging, seizures and liver problems
- Mental health issues such as dementia, depression, hallucinations and panic attacks
Because alcohol is legal and on every corner today, as a society we don’t see it as harmful.
I’m just saying….
Let’s think about our actions when we choose to drink!!!
Assuring a safe and happy ending to each and every day!
